Cade Rogers a veteran soldier for-
nerly of Glenwood, now of the Pacific
branch of the National Home for
disabled soldiers in California, Bends
a card containing on one side the
menu of the Christmas dinner at
the home, which certainly was very
palatable. On the other side is a
handsome likeness of the flag under
which Rogers has written:

Lincoln, Neb., Jan. 16, 1909.
I have Just returned from a trip
to the State Soldier's Home at Mil
ford and Grand Island, where the
committee, of which I am a member,
inspected the same on Friday, leav
ing the city on Thursday night. Ve
arrived at Milford about 7:30. Our
party consisted of seven from the
House and foru from the Senate
eleven in all. After our arrival at
Milford six of the party were con
veyed to the Soldiers' Home for the
night, and five to the Industrial
Home, where the fallen women of
the state are cared for, and in due
course of time are found homes.
Some of the young women come to
this institution almost ready to give
birth to a child. These young wo
men are detained at the home for
one year after the confinement when
the child is kept at the home and
the mother found employment else
where. This is the most charitable
institution in the state and is en
tirely under the control of the Misses
Ward, who former home was at
Pamnee City. Here we remained over
night and enjoyed the excellent
breakfast next morning ere we were
taken to the Soldiers' Home, two
miles distant.
Indeed we would fall far from do
ing our duty did we omit saying a
good word in behalf of the ladies and
the good work they are accomplish

at their hands. Here the wayward

good there would be but little use for
another appropriation. It should
have been placed in extending the
main building where the old veterans
could get the benefit of it, instead of
building a mansion for a man and

to say that most of those who enter
here go away with a resolve to lead
a better life, and they generally ac
complish the purpose for which this
institution was established. There are
thirty-three inmates in this institu
tion, who are learning to sew, to
cook, and are schooled. They put
in one-half of the day in the school
room, and the other half at the
various other duties assigned them.
Here they have an experienced seam
stress who teaches dressmaking and
other domestic household duties, and
when they leave the home they go to
accept a position for which each one
may be especially adopted. There are
also 26 young babies cared for here,
ranging in age from one month to one
year. These were either born here
by some unfortuate young girl or who
have been abandoned by some heart
less mother. They are generously
cared for and are kept as neat as any
loving mother coftld possibly care
for them.
This institution is a God-send to
the fallen women of Nebraska. Ev
erything about the place is kept In
that neatness which would surround
the best of homes, and we Bay that
it should be kept up to its present
standard to which these ladles have
placed it. There Is some talk of the
state doing away with the Institu
tion, and we hope such an Idea will
never predominate, but that Instead,
this legislature will grant it a very
liberal appropriation and that the
Misses Ward will be continued at its
head for all time. They are very
estimable ladies, and their work
shows for itself. They fully under

tution, and we say they should not

which they are so eminently fitted

During the holiday recess I at
tended a farmers' institute in each
county of the First District, taking
with me an expert from the office of
Public Roads and another from the
Bureau Of Plant Industry. My pri
mary purpose was to present the
work that is being done by the U.
S. department of agriculture which
is of direct practical benefit to the
farmers. The experts of the depart
ment have worked out certain meth
ods which have been tried and
proven to be a great success not only
at the state experiment stations, but
when applied on the farms. I have
arranged with the Secretary of Agri
culture to have two experts sent to
the First District next spring to aid
the farmers in introducing these im
proved methods. These experts will
visit the farms and give every assist
ance possible in Introducing these
new methods. Other states are avail
ing themselves of this opportunity
and I am in hopes that the farmers of
my district will take advantage of It
and secure the benefits of the latest
and best improved method
of selecting seens and the cul
tivation of crops. Where these
methods have been put Into pructlce
they have resulted in increasing the
yield from twenty to fifty per cent.

Feiintor Banning yesterday Intro
duced Into the senate a bill making
an open season on squirrels. His bill
provides that the season shall ex
tend from September 30 to November
."iO of each year. Some such legisla
tion is demanded by the farmers
throughout the country as they have
been severe sufferers from the rav
Pges of these little animals. They
have destroyed much property not
stopping at corn and grains but eat
ing iiiurly anything which they hap
pened to fancy. The Banning bill or
some similar measure should lie pass

The announcement of the special

the special prizes. He is announced
as the winner of the $25 gold special

with so many fine entries to compete
with. In addition to these special
prizes which are the bone of conten

down thirteen regular and two spec

prizes amounted to $17, making his
total winnings $62 In cash prizes, a
Bllver cud and fifteen ribbons. This
Is a record which Is well worth feel

tainly knows from this that he has
a selection of chickens which will

chickens now have a name known

Judge Harvey D. Travis Opens Jan
uary Term Several Important
Cases on Docket
From Tuesday's Dally.
Judge H. D. Travis yesterday morn
ing opened the January term of the
district court. The jury la not to
appear until next Monday when the
criminal docket will be taken up and
disposed of, the law cases following.
It is not thought that the criminal
cases will take long to try as most
of those on te docket have been dis
missed or will be otherwise disposed
of. The principal case on the crlm- .
inal' docket is that of the State vs.
Ossenkop and an effort will prob
ably be made by Matthew Gerlng, at
torney for Ossenkop, to obtain a con
tinuance of the case until the next
term. The grounds upon which a
continuance will be asked Is the state
of public feeling aroused by the
shooting of John P. Thacker, by
Johu Clarence and the probable ef
fect of this shooting on public opin
ion. Whether this showing will sat
isfy the court remains to be seen.
The case of State vs. Hixon will be
for trial undoubtedly and the State
vs. Watkins will also be for disposition.
The business disposed of yesterday
was as follows: v
